Lincoln Elementary School Sixth Grade Committee moms Shannon Enright, Ameri Ramirez and Melissa Walsh created a “spooktacular” event for the students of Lincoln Elementary to help them celebrate Halloween in a safe and socially distance way.

Instead of the school’s traditional Halloween Family Pumpkin Patch, the Sixth Grade Committee designed a Haunted Driveway & Pumpkin Patch drive-thru event held on Friday, Oct. 23 between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the school. Lincoln students prepaid and selected a 15-minute time slot to visit the driveway based on the age of the students as the “scare factor” increased as the night went on. Parents and students drove by the school and remained in their cars during the entire experience. Leading the frights were sixth graders Abigail Enright and Rio Ramirez and their dads Mark Enright and Alex Ramirez, who dressed in spooky Halloween costumes then emerged from a haunted house set up on Altura Avenue.

After the frights the cars made a right on New York Avenue heading north where they were met by Lincoln Principal Barbara Fariss and Lincoln parents who passed out treats and gave a pumpkin to each car. Every $15 vehicle ticket purchased included one pumpkin trick-or-treat package, which contained a 7-12 pound pumpkin, one candy treat and a toy favor. Proceeds benefited Lincoln Elementary’s sixth grade class.
Special thanks to David Krohn, Wes and Becky Horton and the above mentioned parents for putting together such a fun and safe event for the students of Lincoln Elementary.
